Central Finance and Treasury

Short guide to the NAO’s work on HM Treasury

This short guide is one of 17 we have produced covering our work on each major government department. It summarises our work on HM Treasury during the last Parliament.

These guides are designed to provide Members of Parliament, and particularly select committees, with a quick and accessible overview of our recent work and how we can help with the scrutiny of government. They cover the following areas and include case examples from NAO reports:

  • The department’s responsibilities and how it spends its money
  • Financial management
  • Use of information
  • Service delivery
